seeing as that's where the keyboard shortcuts and keyboard layout is, yes. the 
Components area is supposed to be for actual components, not configuring 
individual apps. the file manager and performance panels bend/break that 
concept, but that's no reason to make it worse? ;-)

yeah, and that's challenge: a short descriptive name that's accurate =) since 
KHotKeys has been referred to by name in various articles, sticking to 
something similar to that would be good. but keeping it as KHotKeys in the 
control panel breaks with general naming scheme, so i'd prefer Hot Keys.

another option is to pull it from the Control Center altogether and provide a 
different means to access it.
